(CNN) - Older voters had been solidly in Hillary Clinton's camp in nearly every primary contest to date.
But according to exit polls out of both Virginia and Maryland, the New York senator lost those voters to Barack Obama in Tuesday’s primaries.
Among voters over 60, Obama beat Clinton by 8 points in Virginia and 4 points in Maryland.
That is a striking reversal from the trend in nearly every state to date - in an average of exit polls on Super Tuesday, Clinton beat Obama among voters 60 and older by roughly 30 points.
